Review: Upgrade (No Spoilers!)

By Angel

Movie description:  “Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when Grey, a self-identified technophobe, has his world turned upside down, his only hope for justice is an experimental computer chip implant called Stem.”

A gore-tastic revenge style action movie that rejuvenates the science fiction genre as it beautifully reimagines the classic story of man vs machine. There was wonderful writing (especially plot twists), music was amazing, camera movement/cinematography was sick, and performances were great. John Wick meets Robocop meets The Matrix. That ending though!

Message

Living a fake life is less painful than living a real one. There are certain things mankind can do that tech and artificial intelligence cannot.

Grade: A+ (10/10)
